    Above and beyond that ... we all know we have to worry about who aluria also puts on it's "blacklist", like ABW (yeah they did!) CJ, LS, or BF cookies ... this is just another "kick in the balls" to all of us.

    Looks like the networks are going to have to lobby the anti- Spyware/Adware group that their datamining tools isn't spyware. Of course hosting the programs, monitizing and getting revenue from all the Adware companies makes this a uphill battle. Lay down with dogs and you get up with fleas.

    If they won't adopt and feed a bird ..flip them one! BBQ some Gator and remember to flush WhenU..

    Are ditzy and *****y still in charge over there?

    Haiko, I remember when that happened, what was the resolution to that? Did they ever admit it? apologize? Did they block people from actually coming to ABW? or just the cookie?

    Thanks
